Top 30 World Trends in October

From Galactic Hotel Room Stays to WFH Luggage Collections

— October 24, 2020 — World
The October 2020 world trends continue to help consumers and brands navigate through the new normal without compromising worldly experiences. Some examples offer unique ways to approach travel or to cope with the current lack thereof.

Hotels.com takes a futuristic lens with the announcement that it will be the first online travel platform to offer hotel bookings in space in the future. The project is entitled 'One Small Step for Hotels' and showcases what that may look like. Another great world example this month is by The Moment Travelwear. It caters to those who are working from home by offering a new kind of luggage design that helps them transform the space they are working in.
